    In Theaters: 'Dark Shadows' May A Cause A 'Sleepless Night,' But 'God Bless America' For 'Bonsai'

    So “The Avengers” knocked it out of the park, huh? With a $600 million intake worldwide and lots and lots of good reviews, Joss Whedon and the folks over at Marvel can probably even one-up James Cameron at the next Masters of the Hollywood Universe fete. (That sounds fun, doesn’t it? I’d go to a par...

    Review: Chloe Moretz Is Trapped In The Unclean, Clammy Coming-Of-Age Indie 'Hick'

    Later, there will be a brief discussion of how literature is not film, and how some actions and themes do not survive translation from the page to the big screen because our mind can better deal with envisioning them than it can with actually seeing them. Before that though, I feel I have to pause a...

    3 New Photos From 'Hick' Starring Blake Lively & Chloë Moretz, Plus The Green Band Trailer For The Film

    Well, if you can tell us the major differences between this green band trailer and the (not very) red band version that dropped last week for "Hick," you've got better eyes than we do. We're still not quite sure what made that previous trailer so naughty, but here's a cleaned up version you can watc...

    Watch: Blake Lively & Chloë Moretz Go White Trash In Red Band Trailer For 'Hick'

    Well, we will say this. You ain't seen Blake Lively or Chloë Moretz -- or hell, most of the other cast really -- in anything like this before. Whether it all works or not is entirely a different matter, but the red band trailer for "Hick" is sure to grab your attention.

    Poster & New Pics Of Blake Lively, Chloe Moretz & Eddie Redmayne In 'Hick'

    TIFF '11 Review: Chloe Moretz Is Trapped In The Unclean, Clammy Coming-Of-Age Indie 'Hick'

    Later, there will be a brief discussion of how literature is not film and how some actions and themes do not survive translation from the page to the big screen because our mind can better deal with envisioning them than it can with actually seeing them Before that, though I feel I have to pause and note that "Hick," adapting Andrea Portes' novel for the screen under the direction of Derick Martini ("Smiling Fish and Goat on Fire," "Lymelife"), is one of the most unclean and clammy films I've ever had to endure at a film festival. Not because it was incompetent and not because it deals with violent and sexual material but, rather, because it ...
